Of the material you quoted, which one
represents an "extreme" position?

Did someone in this thread advocate
"anguishing" over font choices? I know I
didn't, so it must have been that extremist
Andrew Plato who did. I'll have to speak
to him sternly about that.

Wait a minute ... this wouldn't be one
of those straw-man thingies, would it?
